"Rabbit, Rabbit," a new Talisman painting, 36"x36"x1-1/2", acrylic mixed media on a gallery wrapped canvas. This piece will be available to purchase, along with a handful of sister paintings, at a future date. In the meanwhile, inquiries may always cometo me.
Did you know that a wild rabbit crossing your path is meant to be good luck? And that if you say "rabbit rabbit" on the first of the month, you are bound to have good luck for the next 30 days? So how lucky would it be to have a larger than life sized painting of a wild rabbit, titled "Rabbit Rabbit," in your home?! asking for a friend.......
No rabbits were harmed - or chased - in the making of this painting. But I have been practicing yoga in the mornings with Gertie, my pet bunny, this month. And we were gifted the company of a wee little wild one several evenings in a row. Studying from life is a key piece of understanding their nature and being able to create something that carries the essence or rabbitness (I think that's a made up word, but you know what I'm saying).
That goes for rabbits and flowers and branches and pretty much anything you wish to paint. Take the time to get to know your subject matter, and your depictions will be so much more convincing.
Want to see me practice what I preach? I'll be doing a demo via zoom formy online studentsthis coming Saturday at noon eastern. The session will be recorded for self study and streaming. Join myReal Time tier on Patreon, and you'll have access to this lesson along with all my content from the previous year.
Thanks, as always, for following along with me and my artwork.

And in case you didn't see it, a little doodle of him is also available for sale here . Inquires may come directly to me . Although it certainly doesn't FEEL like spring here (snow and ice and wind chills, brr!), I can tell that spring is coming. The mercury is rising a wee bit each day and the days are getting longer and brighter. Over the weekend we drove with the moonroof open just to feel the sun's meager and oh-so-very-welcome warmth (although the heat in the car was cranked, too, in the interest of full disclosure!). I wanted to work with spring-like colors today, and this little guy was still on my mind , so I grabbed a small panel and got to work. Of course, I also have Poppy to finish and some changes to make to another po

It's been wonderfully crazy the last 10 months or so, as eager collectors have been buying my work, often while it remained unfinished. While I do truly love that the paintings were/are resonating so deeply, I also realized that I needed to institute some changes in how I offered them for sale. Selling immediately wasn't serving my newly discovered desire to savor what the p
